Update! We have a whole forum here: http://www.ausgamers.com/forums/gsr/index.php


We can't do support via the forums, either by forum thread or by private message. It is just too messy, and I'm too likely to miss a question.

If you want support, use the contact form here http://www.ausgamers.com/contact/?info=Rentals and we'll get back to you as quickly as possible.

That being said, if you just can't help yourselves, this is the one and only thread to ask server config questions. I'll check it when I can and give the answers I can. If the answer is something I can't give in an open forum, I'll direct you to the contact form.

To start, a Q from imminentsoldier:
Just 1 question. do I need to set maxplayercount to 64 on the 70slot server to allow for 4 spectators and 2 commanders?
No, since 64 players is the maximum players supported, the extra slots goes to the 2 commanders, then the leftovers to spectators. Your servers are currently properly reporting 66 players + 4 spectators.

I was getting a msg in procon before you fixed 1 of the servers Malthius "object reference set to an instance of an object"
after you fixed the server, procon loaded that server up fine. now I am getting the same thing on another server.

can you please check them all.

And how do we go about getting server support?

Thanks

imminentsoldier: You need to set an rcon password, and it needs to be done via the configuration page for each server, not in the configuration files or anywhere else. If the rcon password isn't set on the configuration page, the server will not accept connections.

Just so you know the Help link in the control panel features/read/3368477 does not go anywhere (blank page) for me.

Good work on the FAQ though will help heaps of people i think you will find.

My server seems to have ip and port details for someone else's BF3 server because when Procon connects its definitely not my server!

Email sent.

Sorry, we have a few of those floating around. I can find most of them because the server fails to start (and I get an alarm), but do log a support request if it happens.

Not yet, and no ETA on when we'll have it up. I want to do it, but its a lower priority than PayPal support etc.

Is it just me or is the startup config file not replacing the configuration page?

By editing the startup config file you override what is in the configuration page. It wont show in the main configuration page

If you haven't used GC a great deal it is a good idea to read the docs, I refer back to it quite a lot.

Sorry should of explained a little more.

What I found after adding the servers to procon is, the configs from startup.txt didn't take affect. I noticed the server name and description wasn't what I added in the startup.txt file. normally I wouldn't have a problem and started scratching my head. so anyway, I changed the server name and server description on the configuration page, restarted and then it showed correctly on procon.

Maybe its the pain killers i'm on. probs wait for 2moro when my head is clear and I am thinking straight and not seeing doubles anymore. :)

Not renting anything or asking a question.
Just some feedback.

This is damn cool, from a guy who has been around since Quake, you guys provide some damn good support for the gaming community. You can hire a server for $10 a month and get this sort of support.

Good job Mammoth and good work those supporting it.
